i mean by that is, it takes 67 votes to change a rule here in the united states sena senate. that's a rule, by the way, that dates back to 1917. and the reason that's in place is because obviously, you know, folks wanted to force the majority and the minority to work together to make those rule changes. you don't get a two-thirds vote without that. and i think that's important, that the basic rules are ones that are agreed on. we tend to change parties a lot around here. in fact, we've shifted back and forth between republicans and democrats seven times in the past 30 years. and so at one point you're in the majority, one time in the minority, and that's why having these basic rules in place seems to me to make sense. there are some proposing that we get around that 67-vote majority by some procedure where instead of having a two-thirds vote, you would just have a majority vote to change a rule. and regardless of what rule that might be, some would say it would be on the motion to proceed and other aspects of the filibuster, of course, it would set a precedent that it could change
